A Success Story

A coordinated, multi-departmental County effort to build affordable housing and community-serving public facilities in Bloomington has garnered $37 million in private investment on top of a $28 million public investment from the County Community Development Fund. The combined funding allowed for the acquisition of an underutilized vacant property and will result in a total of 190 affordable housing units and a 6,500 square foot County Public Library. To support future development for the area, the redevelopment activities also involved substantial public works investments, including street improvements and new water and sewer lines along Valley Boulevard.
